Cafe Conversations

…and then he turned around and said….
… never understood what she sees in…
… think? If I ask for a raise, will my boss….
…the SoB had the gall to tell me he was f***ing her, but she didn’t mean anything…
…have it with a straw? All my friend mommys let them…
…beautiful girl like her, why would she even look at someone like….
…so wonderful. Why are all the guys worth dating married?...
…stop looking at my legs and concentrate on…
For a barista, every table is a novel. The café is actually a library of unfinished books.

Thanks, Fiona.
I must confess I am a serial eavesdropper, and I seem to find stories in every conversation.

I am hopeless at this. I usually get too focussed on whoever I am with to hear what is going on around me.

Rayna, I tagged you to participate in a international women's day contest conducted by Indusladies. Details at my blog. Please participate.

@ Al - to be absolutely honest, these are not lines I heard at a cafe. They are all snatches of conversation I heard on the train. I am a shameless evesdropper!

@ Dipali - thank you, and I did bang up a post for that.
